A fascinating bird of prey show, lasting
approximately 30 minutes, unique in its presentation.
Here you can learn everything worth knowing about falconry and the birds of prey, as well as the protection of birds of prey, the dangers facing birds of prey, their particular abilities and the significance of the birds of prey for the balance of nature.
To ensure an undisturbed Birds of prey flight display visitors to the park must use the entrance to the falconry by means of the path marked with dog symbols. You can then tie your dog to the protective wall while the display is taking place. From here it is possible to enjoy fully the display also.
In case of heavy continuous rain, storm or heat there is an alternative program, because the birds of prey cannot fly then. The birds of prey are presented individually below the falconry arena at the covered pergola and everything worth knowing about the respective bird of prey is explained.
The birds of prey flying display is followed at 12noon and 4pm by the supervised feeding of the Barbary apes. The enclosure is situated opposite the falconry arena.
Between the two areas of the falconry arena and the Barbary apes enclosure there are open air terraces, a light refreshment stand and a cafe for light snacks. Here you have the opportunity to drink a coffee or eat a snack.
